The city is exploring the potential for a development impact/linkage fee for affordable housing and plans to commission a nexus study to determine the economic feasibility of such a fee. The Alliance sent a letter expressing concern over the cumulative impact of policies, like system development charges and new property taxes, that make the development of affordable housing for low- to moderate-income households harder or that increase costs to the end user. The Alliance expressed interest in participating in a work group to review the potential study. Read the letter.
